Hello,I am 68. I started with a fast heart rate in March 150 beats per minute and went to A&E. Doctor very anxious put me on10mg Bisoprolol after 5mg not doing anything whilst I lay there being monitored.As you can imagine the Bisoprolol at this dosage was no fun with it stopping me breathing as I went to sleep as well of lots of other things.Since then I am down to 5mg and on Lanoxin 62.5 micro and it feels OK and sometimes I wonder like today, if I am back to where I was before it all started, unbeknown that my heart rate was not quite all it should be..I am attending the warfarin clinic and on June 23 have an appointment with General Cardiology. In the past I would get a day of AF but could return it to normal by meditating and creating a vibrating humming noise.
I live in hope that I might be able to wean off the drugs, stay on the Warfarin and return to 'normal' ( had a bad experience with statins after just a short time on them, simva statin and omnistatin, in trying to follow the NICE guidelines...now thought to be unreliable.) The Warfarin could help here.
Has anyone ever come off the drugs and returned to 'normal'. I may be asking at the wrong place as people who no longer have the AF may not be reading this site?? Any comments would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
